EVER walk into a home and experience a sense of tranquillity and peace?

Marketing agent Geoff Ryan of Henzells Buderim had just heard one lady remark that she felt 16 Shady Grove, Tanawha, was speaking to her.

The magnificent sprawling Queenslander on 4259sq m exudes that sort of ambience. One of comfort, where the foyer tells you that you're home.

Built in the mid '90s and with the addition of a few mod cons, this was only the second time the charming residence was on offer attracting buyer inspections from as far afield as Sydney.

Auction day came on February 9, with Henzells Mooloolaba principal Greg Young as auctioneer. A crowd of 63 wandered through the spacious rooms on to the back veranda overlooking the pool. An opening bid came from the floor at $600,000 and continued to $980,000.

The crowd left, disappointed for the owners who had obviously presented it with meticulous attention to detail.

Fortunately Geoff and Greg hadn't yet left when a young local family showed up wondering where everyone had gone, they had inspected the previous week and were ready to bid.

Having endeavoured to purchase two other properties in the past few weeks which hadn't proceeded to contract, they didn't want to miss this one.

Negotiations began and agreement was soon met with a sale under auction conditions for $1.1m. Both the sellers and buyers are now able to book the removalists and start packing.
